This would make it a lot more convenient. Right now I have the multi-mission recon explorer with 2 consoles- just for the chroniton quantum slipstream to get around. I also got the Omega Force Hyper-Impulse Engines, but it does NOT reduce the slipstream cooldown to nothing, like it says- 100%, though it does reduce it to half.


What would you think of a clickable galaxy map, rather than having to actually go there to get the assignments? I usually have to find the 20h artifact assignments myself, as they are not on dofftrekker- only the rare one is. I like to put doffs on this for chance of getting a strange alien artifact, but first I must find out where they are, which means going all over the galaxy map.

It's not challenging at all. It doesn't require any skill to cross a border/zone, just time. Maybe you mean the omega drive or something then

... and by "challenge" we mean "extending your logged in time, making you fly around and trying to tempt you into buying lockboxes to get the wonderful ships you see everywhere!".

May I recommend a few points in driver coil - at least 3, and one of the two "break warp 10" drives - assimilated Borg or MACO, with Assimilated Borg being the slightly better of the two...

I think I average at least 18-20 with my MACO impulse on the Vesta, and can quantum slipstream to 33 - though I suffer with the two minute cooldown on chroniton quantum slipstream, and I think I hit 22-23 with the Tuffli running the Borg engine...

When I'm in a DOffing mood, I hate my Omega kitted ships, yeah, the one minute quantum cooldown is nifty, but being stuck at warp 10 when slipstream is cooling feels like such a drag compared to even my MACO-equipped Vesta...

If you're a DOffing type character, I'd recommend running a small handful of normal STFs just to get the marks for tier 2 and one of the two Mk X "break warp 10 limit" engines, they give the same speed boost at X that they give at XII...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...

It would be more comfortable, but it could screw up doffing and the economy big-time. If you currently have an hour of ingame-time to spare, you might be able to refresh support-assignments on 2-3 characters, depending on how fast you are .

Without travel- and map-changing-time, people could go through 20-30 renewals within an hour. Prices for Doffs, commodities, particles, artifacts and dilithium could plummet even more, making doffing itself less attractive. Sectors, ground zones and star clusters might be completly empty afterwards.

How to really behave in online forums with developers
One of the best signature/link combinations I've seen so far. I hope you don't mind if I copy the idea.

I must point out that in this game, a 100% cooldown does not mean the cooldown goes down to 0; instead, it means it's a 50% decrease.

And also, a 200% cooldown would not mean dropping it to 0 either. That would reduce it to a quarter of the original cooldown, if I have my math right.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.
